Hi Davey, I personally like Begin. They have great songs like sanshin no hana, shimanchu nu takara, oji jiman no orion beer, etc.
I think the mother of all Okinawan songs has to be Haisai Ojisan, with Shimanchu nu takara a very close second.

Thanks for the recommendation s. Was nice to hear parts of that album Mike!

Have been listening a lot to begin these days, especially sanshin no Hana is great!

Speaking strictly this is an Amami music, not Okinawan, but very touching.

I too love Okinawan music. That simplistic sound of a sanshin is very relaxing.

Gackt is from Okinawa, so technically you could call that Okinawan music as well👍
